So I haven't posted about my recent dating disasters: two stand ups and a broken heart :) But hey, at least I'm getting out there.

But an online friend, call him Romeo just told me he is being transferred to my city for work! And he said, "you know the first thing I want to do when I get there? Take you out on a date!" You know me, I LOVE the direct honesty. Then he says, "but don't pull my chain, you KNOW I want a r/ship and thats my focus. Let me know if you aren't ready or I'm not the guy." He knows my history...lol...but honestly, I did get a little nervous when he said that.

So I changed the subject..."hey, I never asked you what you do for a living!" He's a manager with one of the OIL COMPANIES! Yikes! And he knows I'm a transportation environmentalist...ie: he works to see oil, I work to get ppl not to buy it! Does that just figure?

Oh well, I will go out on a date with him. Why not? Who knows?

Go.

I think you can live with that difference if everything else seems ok. Besides, it gives you something to discuss and perhaps you can convince him of the error of his ways.

Oh, that is TOO FUNNY! But maybe you guys will end up as one of those "mixed" politics couples like James Carville and Mary Matalin, or Arnold Schwarzeneger and Maria Shriver!
